About Iris


I didn’t know I was highly sensitive until in my late twenties. I had no clue my lack of energy was connected to being sensitive. I’d had physical challenges for years so I had simply assumed my exhaustion and fatigue were due to various illnesses.

Then I discovered I was highly intuitive as well.

Hint: these two often go hand-in-hand

Now at that time I didn’t see myself as someone who was especially perceptive. I was more rationally oriented and interested. I enjoyed getting my MBA.

But after these insights a lot of things suddenly made sense, like how I got drained around a large number of people, or why I often felt weak and tired. I wanted to do so much more in life but I kept hitting a wall. There was something wrong with me, but I couldn’t get a grip on what that might be. All I knew was I just didn’t have enough energy.

Fast forward to today.

I run a successful international business. I’ve created a line of unique essential oil essences, enjoy giving workshops & retreats from NYC to Ireland and Italy and back home in The Netherlands, and I wrote my first novel Poisoned Arrow. I have that much energy.

The difference?

I learned how to take care of myself. How to embrace my sensitivity and turn it from a curse into a gift. A gift that allows me to support clients with deep, intuitive insights.

That strategy is precisely what I now call SWEET POWER™: an all-new intuitive approach to personal and career development, growth, and self-care designed for those who have big things to do in this world, but who often feel drained by the demand required for showing up big.


Once I got the hang of managing my SWEET POWER™, I noticed a huge surge in my energy levels. My energy became something I could monitor and manage—not merely be at the mercy of. I finally got a grip, felt solid and grounded, realized long-held ambitions, had plenty of time left over for my personal life, and—like I said—even started my own international business, because I was no longer running on empty at the end of the day.
